This is Anfield are delighted to be teaming up with Football Fanager to offer readers the chance to win a Liverpool home shirt signed by the squad with a fantasy football competition for Boxing Day’s round of fixtures.
In essence, the format of the game is very similar to the standard Premier League fantasy football that the majority of people play, but this one is short and sweet — 26th December’s full fixture programme.
You have a budget of £250 million to pick 11 players for your team, with transfer values based on real market values – no more arbitrary fees that are designed to prevent you selecting all the players you really want!
Your selected players then score points for goals, assists, clean sheets and lose points for receiving cards, conceding goals (defenders and goalkeepers only) missing penalties and so on. You will also have a captain pick that will score double points.
The league is completely free to join and will commence 15 minutes before kick-off of the first Premier League game on 26th December 2014 (Chelsea v West Ham – 12:45pm), ending after the last game of the day (Arsenal v QPR – 5:30pm). Liverpool take on Burnley at Turf Moor at 3pm, so it promises to be a great day of top-flight action.
This means there are a total of 10 games in which players can contribute points to your teams tally. See if you can beat This Is Anfield’s team in the league:
It couldn’t be easier to enter a team, simply follow the instructions by selecting your formation, starting 11, captain and team name and that’s it, you’re in! Good Luck!
It’s £1.10 entry per team and you can submit up to 10 teams per league – It’s also worth noting that if you deposit £5, they’ll credit your account instantly with another £5 – Meaning you buy one team and get one free. Happy days. Simply pick what you think will be the best 11-man team for the 10 Premier League fixtures on Boxing day or New Year’s Day and submit your team like a bet! The top 50 finishers of each league will be paid out.
